Here I am, late as per usual, for the second round of the Ravenclaw SS exchange!! I figured I'd review the one shots on your page. I was thrilled when I saw this story. I love George Weasley stories. It doesn't matter how many I read, I still get emotional reading snippets of his grief over Fred's death. JKR is so cruel to us. wahh.
This was a fresh take on this type of story. I thought the quote you chose to work with suited it all so, so well and made what may have been just another georger-grief fic really memorable. The idea of george not being able to face his birthday, the idea of growing older without Fred, all alone, is heart breaking. It's like... he's not handling life well to begin with, but the thing he can handle the least is the idea of growing old without his twin. omg. I am getting choked up writing this and thinking about it.
I thought that your descriptions and emotion that you packed into your words were well executed and really added a level of depth to the story.
Great work!Author's Response: It's fine about being late- I was pretty late with my gifts, too.
JKR was very cruel with Fred's death, particularly! (probably why I can't resist writing george :o)
I always cry when I think about Fred and George like that :( :( It's so sad! Losing your twin- I mean I couldn't imagine losing my sister, but he was George's best friend too. Gosh.
Thank you so much for the fantastic review! Report Review
This was beautifully written. I loved the similes you included, I found them really creative.
Your portrayal of George's feelings was really good. I've read alot of fics about Fred's death where it's hard to find it believable. And your description is amazing!
I loved the line about the girl in the village, that was heartbreaking. Also, the line about the graveyard and the corpses was really eerie but helped with the dark tone.
It was really well done, good job!
